posted by Randall

Wellesley CollegeWellesley College this week announced  it will be offering a minor in Asian American Studies beginning in the fall of 2013. It’s hoped the program “will give rise to exciting new channels of faculty collaboration and interaction—particularly between Psychology and American Studies,” said English professor Yoon Sun Lee and author of Modern Minority: Asian American Literature and Everyday Life. “My hope is that it will become a source of academic strength and distinction for the college,” she added.

The Wellesley Asian Alliance (WAA) has been advocating for the recognition of Asian American Studies at Wellesley College since it was founded in 1994.   WAA wrote: “This is the fruit of many years of hard work, perseverance, and inspiration by supporting faculty, administrators, students, and WAA alumnae.”`
